Mémoires, souvenirs, opinions et écrits du Duc de Gaëte, I-II. [TWO VOLUMES].
Paris, Baudouin Frères, 1826.. Two volumes. Octavo. Pp. 336; 599, (1) errata. Plus folding table. Appendix, tables to the text. Hardcover, custom bound in uniform contemporary speckled boards, spines gilt-stamped; few creased pages, light sporadic foxing, one half-title slightly stained at edges. In about fine condition. ~ First edition. Complete work in itself upon publication, a supplementary volume was published in 1834. [Provenance:] From the library of Comte de Schönborn Buchheim with a handsome armorial bookplate inside each volume's cover, and an armorial shelf label, printed in red, with a manuscript shelf number, to each cover. The Schönborn family is first noted as a feudal Rhenish house in the 15th century. Barons and, later, Counts, the family added the name, arms, and lands of the last Count of Buchheim by inheritance in the early 1700s. Later in that century the family divided into 3 branches: the eldest of 3 brothers, Franz Philipp (1768-1841) headed the Schönborn-Buchheim branch, based in lower Austria and Vienna. The Count of Schönborn-Buchheim was the father of Francis George (Franz Georg von Schönborn-Buchheim, 1682-1756), the Archbishop of Trier, later the Bishop of Worms, later Provost of Ellwangen. Handsome set with exquisite provenance.
